Picture Perfect: Prada F/W 2015 Campaign

Prada has just released its latest campaign and it reminds me of the F/W 2007 campaign images!


Shot by Steven Meisel, this campaign features Ine Neefs, Maartje Verhoef, Greta Varlese, Lineisy Montero, Avery Blanchard, Estella Boersma, Inga Dezhina. The background is very simple, yet it makes the colourful outfits from the collection stand out. The girls look feminine, modern, yet independent at the same time. The campaign video incorporates the Fantasy Lookbook idea and I love the frames when the girls are taking off their sunglasses. Overall, it has a surreal feeling to the video. 

What do you think?

Exhibition: Andy Warhol Revisited

When I think of pop art, Andy Warhol will always pop up in my mind. His Marilyn Monroe and Campbell's Soup Cans series are 2 of my all time favourite things in the art world. Today I finally have the chance to see his original artworks right in front of my eyes!

Walk the Walk: Thom Browne S/S 2016 Collection

The oriental favour has invaded the S/S 2016 Menswear Paris Fashion Week, and the latest brand is Thom Browne.

For this season, Browne takes inspiration from the Japanese artworks and use the suit as the canvas. I love the patchworks as they resemble the elements (house, samurai, tree) of the traditional Japanese paintings. Grey and black still dominate the collection, and the jackets are much longer than the signature silhouette. The men's kimono is a good surprise at the end of the runway show as it is inspired by the signature jacket.

Once again, Thom Browne created a collection that has a good balance of wearable and non-wearable pieces. I am very excited to see if this Asian flavour will apply on his womenswear collection in September.


Pros:
- Love how Thom uses the suits as the canvases to create Japanese classic artworks on them.
- The length of the suit is longer this season to give a refreshing take on his signature silhouette.
- Love the kimonos, they will be good for editorials!

Eye Candies:
- All the suits with Japanese inspired artwork patches
- The Kimono
